Both Arrow and The Flash look to be expanding their respective stories in unique and exciting ways moving into their new seasons, with Arrow set to introduce all kinds of magic in their fourth season, and The Flash about to integrate all the different worlds and dimensions that were opened at the end of its first season. So if one thing is for sure, the DC TV Universe is starting to take even more ambitious and risky moves than some of the films that are coming out over the next few years.
However, neither Flash or Arrow are going to have quite the scope that the new DC spin-off series, Legends of Tomorrow, looks to have. Featuring an all-star cast from both shows, including Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), and more – the series is also set to introduce an entire wave of new characters as well. Two of the most notable additions being Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) and Hawkman (Falk Hentschel).
While we know that the characters on the show will be sticking to their comic book origins in at least the most important ways, we haven’t really gotten to see much of anything from either of them. Until today, that is because the CW has released a new photo of the two characters standing side-by-side in their official costumes from the show. Check out the image below:
In terms of the comics, they’re pretty accurate adaptations and should be enough to make all you die-hard fans out there happy, even if those hawk helmets might lie more in the cheesy realm of superhero costumes. While both of the characters are reincarnations of their past Egyptian selves, the only difference between the two characters is that Hentschel’s Carter Hall still retains all of his memories, while Renee’s Kendra Saunders does not. It’ll be interesting to see how they manage to integrate the fairly mystical and mythological backstories of the two characters into the series, especially considering how dark and fairly scientific of a tone the universe has established so far.
The show is going to incorporate some of the largest concepts and storytelling techniques though,as the team of heroes and villains fight throughout time to try and stop the immortal Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) from ruling the world. The use of time travel as a device as well as half of the cast being made up of familiar characters, should help Legends of Tomorrow inject both a familiar and fresh tone to this already stellar TV universe.
Legends of Tomorrow is set to premiere on the CW in 2016.
